MILWAUKEE - The temperatures we'll experience Wednesday in Southeastern Wisconsin will be the coolest of the week.
Despite changes on the mercury in your outside thermometer, there's no change in the amount of precipitation expected to fall Wednesday in our area.
"High pressure will continue to keep us locked into this dry weather pattern," said Storm Team 4Caster Jesse Ritka.
"We're now almost an inch and a half below normal for rainfall! (There's) no help from Mother Nature today in that department with mostly sunny skies expected today."
Light wind will come off the lake Wednesday before switching direction for the evening.
"Partly cloudy skies and seasonable temperatures can be expected tonight as the wind takes on a more southerly direction," explained Jesse.
There's still no expected rain on Thursday, which Jesse tells us should be "the best day of the week."
Then, possibilities of rain will finally increase for the weekend and the start of next week.
"Humidity and temperatures both rise on Friday with mid-80s expected across southeastern Wisconsin and just a slight chance for an isolated shower," predicted Jesse.
"The weekend looks warm and muggy with isolated chances for rain but most of Saturday and Sunday stay dry. The best chance for the much needed rain doesn't come until Monday night."
